Maker's Mark Kentucky Bourbon
Maker's Mark changed the way we think of bourbon, all because one man changed the way he thought about making it. Bill Samuels, Sr., simply wanted a whisky he would enjoy drinking. Never bitter or sharp, Maker's Mark® is made with soft red winter wheat, instead of the usual rye, for a one-of-a-kind, full-flavored bourbon that's easy to drink. To ensure consistency, we rotate every barrel by hand and age our bourbon to taste, not time. Each and every bottle of Maker's® is still hand-dipped in our signature red wax at our distillery in Loretto, Ky., just like Bill, Sr., would have wanted.
Maker’s Mark maintain that they distill their bourbon to the lowest proof of any US whiskey distillery.
This proffers a bourbon that retains a rich flavour. Developed by Bill Samuels Sr, who replaced rye with red winter wheat to reduce the burning sensation.
Aroma - Woody oak, caramel, vanilla and wheat prevail in the nose
